American gypsies are actually a blend of native Hungarians, Germans, English, Romanian, Russian and Serbian descendants of nomadic families that choose to live their lives separated from the general population.

Therefore, they are easily recognizable by their non-conformist clothing and their abilities to easily move and assimilate into other welcoming gypsy communes around the U.S.
